MAP testing and Khan Academy MAPPERS
All students in 2nd through 8th grade will be expected to logon to Khan Academy/Mappers for a minimum number of minutes per week to help with very specific math concepts. The problems that they receive on their profile are based on their winter MAP scores in each of the four areas of math. They can logon to a computer, IPAD, tablet, chromebook or even a smart phone (although that might be a little hard). Information will be coming home to you on a blue paper.
Looking ahead to REGISTRATION
5th grade parents... please be aware that there will be ONLY ONE 6th grade class and space will be limited.
